Tecnocad foaming

FIELD OF APPLICATION: Tecnocad Foaming is a technology for the production of component with particularly significant applications in the automotive industry, for example dashboard, door panels and arm rests, with rich finishes including leather or fabric upsholstery.

COMPARISON WITH THE CONVENTIONAL MANUAL UPSHOLSTERING:

Conventional manual upsholstering:

  1. Manual fitting of plastic into the foaming mold
  2. Foam injection and polymerization
  3. The foamed component is removed from the mold
  4. Glue is spread over the plastic upholstery
  5. Final trimmings

Tecnocad foaming

  1. Leather fitted into the mold by a dedicated device
  2. Foam injection and polymerization
  3. The foamed component is removed from the mold
  4. Final trimmings

DESCRIPTION: this method replace conventional upholstering by a semi-automatic process in wich the leather is fitted directly into the foaming mould.

KEY POINTS:

  • Soft touch
  • Without glue
  • Fidelity to style shapes
  • Applicable to existing models
  • Volume production
  • Quick industrialization
  • Investment saving & price reduction
